New to sail cruising, old on navigation

Hello everyone,

I am new to sail cruising, second time this year. We onboarded friends who are taking care of the land activities. I foudn out that OI was personnally well equiped but they were pretty without information. I ended up on this OpenSeaMap and decided to contribute to the map by encoding on a regular basis information from Navionics and other info.

All the best to you,
